We all know by now that getting bitten by a tick may lead to Lyme disease. But this is not the only serious bacterial disease the sneaky bloodsuckers can cause. Among them is Rocky Mountain spotted fever (RMSF), which can be difficult to diagnose and becomes life-threatening if not treated properly.
One mom from Georgia had the biggest scare in her life when her son contracted RMSF and wasn’t diagnosed correctly until she did her own research and pointed out the disease to his doctors. Now, the woman is doing all she can to spread awareness about RMSF and proper protection from ticks.
